Oriental Languages Faculty is one of the youngest faculties of Khujand State University named after academician B. Gafurov. It was founded as the department of the Tajik Philology Faculty and has been functioning as an independent one since June, 2002. Professors Umeda Gafforova, Nizomiddin Zohidi, Assistant Professors Nurullo Giosov and Abdukholik Raupov made sufficient contribution in making up the curriculum, syllabuses and developing courses at the inception of the faculty.
